Premium Sencha tea bags have the same outstanding taste as the loose leaf teas. The pyramid-shape fine-mesh teabag makes brewing quick and easy. Each tea bag is individually packaged in a foil wrapper to insure freshness.
This is a delicious Sencha tea. The flavor is light yet rich.
This Japanese Sencha has a clean, vegetative taste – not quite grassy, but more like steamed vegetables. Broccoli! As the sip approaches the finish, a slight grassy tone presents itself, although it isn’t a bitter grassy taste. The aftertaste is sweet with notes of butter that deliciously coats the palate.
The overall flavor is sweet with a slight creaminess from the buttery note, and a fresh, leafy kind of taste that is both vegetable and grass. I like this Sencha very much, while it does have a lot of flavor to the cup, it has an enchanting lightness to it. It isn’t overpowering, making it the perfect cup for mealtime… or any time!
